What is Home Detention?
Community service is a program for low risk offenders, with little to no previous criminal history. They are scheduled for one to two days of service to the city, and complete various activities such as weeding, washing cars, litter pick up, and park maintenance. Prior to completing service, they fill out an application for the program, and are put through background investigation similar to Home Detention. This is a good alternative to jail for first time offenders and those with more minimal charges. It saves the city money by keeping these offenders out of the jail system, saving the city booking and daily housing fees, and keeping the jails less crowded.
